the problem with QZ is...it's a victim of it's own success

think how easily it got out of control....someone uploads something...so someone else asks for something else...so that is uploaded too...pretty soon everybody wants everything ...NOW!!!!like everyone has a devine right to everything - without uploading/offering anything in return

how about...everyone only gets access to downloads if their upload/sseding ratio is more than 1:1 - ie everyone on QZ gets a password to download...and it de-activates or is denied if ratio is below 1:1

What if someone (like me) barely uses torrents, and mainly uses Rapidshare? How do you put a ratio on that, I wonder.....

At any rate I am planning to put another show or two up on Rapidshare anyway :)

Don't blame Brenski, he just wants to earn some money :)

Just kidding...

But I don't think it's possible to stop the down- and uploading. I don't use Torrents, because I don't have an idea of what to do, but I use Rapidshare..

Once I get some shows off the Hub (which means once I get 2 GB of unofficial material), you can expect some bootleggies form me on Rapidshare.
EDIT: I'm at 1.93 GB. AAAARGH! So close! Must...get...Vienna...concert...
And since I got me a Premium Account, you can expect some larger ZIP files.

join the other hub and you'll be at 2gb in no time. You do know there are 2 hubs don't you? One for over 2gb, one for under. email bokkepoot for details.

I'm in total agreement with rhe torrent ratio scheme. I'm a member of a few torrent sites and maintain all my ratios between 1.5 - 2, mainly by leaving my computer on overnight. However, I'd just like to point out to those that want people with a ratio of less that 1:1 to be cut off, it is mathematically impossible for everyone to have equal upload download ratios.

If someone is greater than 1, someone else is less than 1. That's how it works. Plus, if someone seeds a new torrent, they are not downloading so the overall network share ratio is more askew.

Insisting on a ratio of 0.25 once a certain download limit has been reached is much more practical.

Everyone starts with zero, so initially, apart from the first seeders, everyone will have a negative ratio.
